Some shows are staged without word of it ever reaching me - a fate that almost happened to the upcoming production of The Vagina Monologues.
I was at a restaurant in downtown Huntington last week and noticed a poster for the show, but I didn't get a look at when or where it was being presented.
Then a friend (who shall go nameless) sent this email:
The Marshall Women's Studies Department, I believe, is doing The Vagina Monologues this weekend and the proceeds are going to the Golden Girls group home.And that's all I know so far. I'm not sure where the show will be presented, or even exactly when - but I'll keep trying to track it down.
A reminder, then, to one and all - to get the word out, all you have to do is send notes to the news outlets listing the show, time, place and any other basic information. Send it to me at TheMinskers@aol.com and I'll be glad to promote it here, too.
As a good friend once said, "I make it a point not to go to see shows I don't know about." Don't put on a stealthy show - send out the word!
